President Director of LPPOM MUI, Ir. Muti Arintawati, M.Si, appreciated the commitment and efforts of the Kenangan Brands technical team in obtaining a halal certificate. According to her, this was only possible to achieve with all the commitment and cooperation from management and the entire company team to continue to maintain the consistency of the implementation of the Halal Product Assurance System (SJPH) that has been implemented. Of course, this is a challenging journey.
“This halal certificate is not the end of the process, but rather the beginning of a long process because the application of SJPH needs to be maintained. We also appreciate the Kenangan Brands management team because they can adjust what is in this outlet to follow according to the requirements. A management team with a strong commitment and a good technical team is a perfect combination for Kenangan Brands,” said Muti.
Co-Founder James Prananto said he expressed his gratitude to BPJPH and LPPOM MUI for providing halal certificates and having been guided and assisted until the halal certificate was successfully obtained.
